President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick has announced that an agreement has been reached with their Ukrainian counterpart for a friendly between both countries.
The friendly match against Ukraine will be played on September 10 in Kiev.
“We have secured a Grade A international friendly match for the Super Eagles against the Ukraine in Kiev, on the 10th of September.
"It is part of our ongoing drive to expose as many players as we can to global football, so this should be another springboard for our national team development,” reads the Tweet on Pinnick’s Twitter handle.
It will be Super Eagles' first encounter after finishing third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The friendly match will serve as part of preparation for the Super Eagles’ 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games against the Squirrels of Benin billed to hold on November 11 at a yet to be named venue in Nigeria.
